|Information on Becoming a Foster or Adoptive Family|
Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming an Olive Crest Foster or Adoptive family.
Olive Crest is a private, non-profit organization that serves the community by providing homes for children who are dependents of the state. These children have been taken into state custody due to abandonment, neglect and/or abuse. Therefore, the children we care for require that foster and adoptive parents be educated on the special emotional needs these children may have. We provide in home support, on-going education classes and reimbursement for the care of children. Our Foster and Foster/Adopt parents are the primary agents of healing in the lives of the children we serve. We desire to equip our parents with the tools they need to have a positive impact on these children's lives.
Foster and Foster/Adopt parents provide the primary care and supervision for these children. Therefore, Olive Crest Foster and Foster/Adopt parents need to ensure a safe, nurturing and stable home environment that encourages the emotional and physical development of each child. Foster parent involvement can range from short-term care for children to adopting a child.
